Photographer's Note

Every year, Covid free, Plympton have a History week which complements the History month that is held in Plymouth.
And each year this group 'The Age of Chivalry', a medieval re-enactment group come for the weekend to share their knowledge of the time, and to re-enact
a display(s) of sword fighting.

From their facebook page:- "The Age of Chivalry is a family friendly medieval society based in Plymouth and the surrounding area.
The focus of the society is to provide a colourful, entertaining and educational display.
It covers the medieval period during the reign of Edward III 1327-1377."

"Medieval Europe (1000-1500) is often remembered and imagined as a chivalric civilisation, a time when men were courageous and courteous, ladies were fair and respected and the clash of arms was also an embodiment of Christian piety."

Three pictures of a part of the re-enactment.
It was a warm afternoon, so the men in their heavy costumes must have been overheating!

The rope was their to prevent any children getting too close to the display.

Thanks for looking.
